"X2go server on Debian 8.10, stdin is not a tty"

X2go server on Debian 8.10, stdin is not a tty

I am using x2go server on Debian 8.10.

When I try to connect using x2go client, I get the error:
Quote:
"stdin: is not a tty stty: standard input: Invalid argument".
My online searches return results of most people suggesting to replace the line:

Code:
mesg n

with

Code:
tty -s && mesg n

in /root/.profile

or some variation. I tried this but the problem persists.

I'm thinking this has to do with shell scripts trying to access tty in a non-interactive mode but I cannot seem to find where else this would be happening. I'm pretty new to Linux so I probably need some assistance now, thank you.

FD(4)							   BSD Kernel Interfaces Manual 						     FD(4)

NAME
fd, stdin, stdout, stderr -- file descriptor files DESCRIPTION
The files /dev/fd/0 through /dev/fd/# refer to file descriptors which can be accessed through the file system. If the file descriptor is open and the mode the file is being opened with is a subset of the mode of the existing descriptor, the call: fd = open("/dev/fd/0", mode); and the call: fd = fcntl(0, F_DUPFD, 0); are equivalent. Opening the files /dev/stdin, /dev/stdout and /dev/stderr is equivalent to the following calls: fd = fcntl(STDIN_FILENO, F_DUPFD, 0); fd = fcntl(STDOUT_FILENO, F_DUPFD, 0); fd = fcntl(STDERR_FILENO, F_DUPFD, 0); Flags to the open(2) call other than O_RDONLY, O_WRONLY and O_RDWR are ignored. IMPLEMENTATION NOTES
By default, /dev/fd is provided by devfs(5), which provides nodes for the first three file descriptors. Some sites may require nodes for additional file descriptors; these can be made available by mounting fdescfs(5) on /dev/fd. FILES
/dev/fd/# /dev/stdin /dev/stdout /dev/stderr SEE ALSO
